Our tour guide was great! He took us through the museum to ensure we saw the places he knew would get backed up quick first, so hardly any lines. He was very knowledgeable and told us about the other air and space museum by Dulles as our son is a huge WWII plane buff. It was definitely worth it!
Our guide was informative, friendly, prompt and eager to answer our questions.
The guide was very helpful and very nice!
